Well, these past few weeks, the LP labs have been brewing yet another listening experience. This coming weekend, in conjunction with the “In/Visible: Disability and the Arts” conference, the LP has created a Haverford campus accessibility tour. With clips from a few student interviews and basic accessibility information about several prominent buildings on campus, the mp3 we’ve compiled will work something like a “museum tour” of campus. In the spirit of accessibility, we’re also in the process of creating a print document to accompany the mp3. You can totally customize your tour experience by using the mp3, the print tour, or both; no matter what, it should be an interactive and informative experience. Expect signage and specific time information within the next 24 hours, campus!
So, first, I almost forgot to order cassette tapes. Now, the cassette tapes are here and the tape recorders are on backorder. Someone needs to tell the universe to stop playing tricks on the Listening Project. Thanks!
At any rate, the show must and will go on! This Thursday, the LP will kick off the recording period with a radio listening party in Stokes! We’ll listen to some podcasts, eat tasty things, chat about interviewing styles, and generally mingle. I will acquire tape recorders by any means necessary… which means that we’ll also get to start playing with technology and anyone who comes will have the opportunity to make a recording right there! You can check it out on facebook, too.
